Stan Moniz – @stanmoniz

Stan is a photographer/filmmaker and member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective. His account puts the epic results of his adventure photography journey on display. He has a knack for capturing stunning wave photos, and he took the one below with his Sony α7R IV. He says, “All I know is that the α7R IV is a perfect camera for surf photography. Why? Simple facts. Most times in the water we surf photographers battle against keeping a straight horizon due to being jolted, slammed, and tossed around in the power of the surf. There are definitely a lot of factors that need to be calculated in a split second to achieve a perfect shot.”

“With that said, having the 61 megapixels allows you to crop in and straighten out the image to your liking. Leaving you with still a powerful and healthy file to work with, especially for print. Of course, the camera does come with some major upgrades compared to the α7R III, but I would have to say after seeing first hand what 61 can do I'm all in!”

Demas Rusli – @demas

Demas is a photographer/designer based in Sydney, Australia. The photos you’ll find posted on his Instagram account provide interesting perspectives and plenty of colors. He took the composite shot below using his Sony α7R IV and says, "This image was created during my recent road trip around the Southwest with three friends at the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. It was definitely a team effort with one friend driving the car, one friend modeling, and one friend helping with lighting up the rocks with a torch. The final image is a composite of four photos/exposures - one for the model, one for the car trail, one for the rocks, and one for the sky (which was shot at a different location)."

Marcela – @marrific

Marcela is a NYC-based art director who captures incredible landscapes, cityscapes, street photos and more using her Sony α7R IV. She had the chance to test out the camera at a #BeAlpha event in New York City, and she definitely fell in love with it. She captured this beautiful reflection shot below in Kyoto, Japan.
